Two trekkers Moshe Kozlovski and Drora Levi Kozlovski from Israel planned to do the trip that blends with the cultural and adventure in Tibet. They decided to go for the ‘Tingri to Everest Base camp trek’ which was mixed with the tour to the different monasteries in Lhasa, Shightse, Gyantse as well as trekking to the lap of the Everest – the highest mountain of the world starting from the small bustling Tibetan market of Tingri.
They spent 4 days for the sightseeing tour to Potala Palace, Norbulinkha Palace, Drepung and Sera Monastery and Jokhang Temple and acclimatization in Lhasa before crossing the passes of 5000 m. On the way, they visited Yam Drok Tso Lake, Gyantse Dong, Kubum in Gyantse and Tashilampo Monastery in Shightse which have their own religious importance.
The trek was accompanied by an experience guide and a cook from Nepal. Because of the bad weather, they could only trek up to Lung Thang. Although, they could not accomplish the trek, they drove to the Everest Base camp, the main destination of the trek and further to Kathmandu.
The clients were satisfied with the level of service of our guide and supporting staffs and wish to come in future to complete the same trek!
Tingri to Everest Base camp trek
I am not the type of person that would usually take a trip from Beijing to Kathmandu by land. I had no idea what international travel was like or how difficult it can be gaining entry into Tibet. In fact I still don’t because Explore Himalaya made it easy for me.
